Re: Public Interest Work Experience PS

Postby papercut » Wed Feb 05, 2014 6:03 pm

Specific memorable situation faced in public interest work experience.

This should be your whole PS. A PS should be a story. Something anyone might like to read. A story where we'll infer all your good qualities without having to read any adjectives.

Transition into my distaste for the word “underprivileged” relate to myself personally

Ugh. Don't preach in your PS.

Propose a more appropriate phrase: “under [redacted]ed”

You should not be making arguments in your PS. That's what law school exams are for. The PS is to show who you are. So far, you seem like the kind of person that doesn't understand the point of a PS even though it's right there in the PS prompt.

Your argument about semantics in particular is a terrible idea.

"I believe it shouldn't really be called ice cream. It's really nothing like ice. A more appropriate phrase is under heated cream."

Your boner for creating a new "politically correct" phrasing will make the adcoms think you're uptight.

End by returning to forests specifically relating to morality and the memorable situation. Kant might say… I say…

:roll: Don't give lectures on Kant in your PS.

Tell a story.
